Today’s Tip – Day three.. third sin is… Greed! Yes we do so love greed don’t we. Money, money, money… nothing then a big pile of money. Add Gluttony and lust into it and you have a big huge pile of money that you want more of and refuse to share. How does that sound to you really? Does it sound bad? NO! It sounds like something we all want.
So Greed, or as I like to call it MINE MINE MINE is good. It healthy it’s a natural part of the world. What we have we want to keep what you have I want to keep and what they have I want to keep and do you know why? Because, MINE MINE MINE. No, really… MINE. Think about it though, when is enough? I can’t measure it can you? No one is saying steal to get what you want but trying to pretend you aren’t greedy is like trying to pretend that throwing rocks at people isn’t fun <see wrath>. You want fame, you want money and if you can help it you want all of it right. SO embrace that, be greedy take all you want, and then you can give back… after you discover how much enough is. I personally haven’t found out yet, maybe call Bill Gates or Donald Trump and ask them. They might know.
So what does this mean, well in the immortal words of Gordan Gekko:
“The point is, ladies and gentleman, that greed — for lack of a better word — is good.
Greed is right. Greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit. Greed, in all of its forms — greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge — has marked the upward surge of mankind.”
See, they even know its right in the movies. If you haven’t seen Wall Street, then shame on you. Because that whole greed speech will stick with you and help you to embrace it. Remember.. “Greed is good!”
